Ingredients:  
3 cups bread flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 cup unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
3/4 cup plus 1 tbsp. light brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips
1 cup walnuts, coarsely chopped

Directions:
Directions:
In a medium bowl, combine bread flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. In another bowl, beat the cold butter on medium speed for about one minute, until it comes together in one mass. Add the brown and white sugar, and beat for 1 to 2 minutes, until the sugar is well-incorporated. Slowly add the eggs, then the vanilla, and mix until all ingredients are combined, scraping the sides of the bowls as needed. The batter may appear lumpy. Slowly add the flour. Mix until it is just incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips and walnuts by hand. Divide the dough into 10 pieces, about 4 ounces each. Roughly shape them into a ball, but do not make it too smooth and perfect looking. You want these to be mounds of rustic looking dough, not perfect dough balls. Place on parchment-lined cookie sheets and bake in a preheated 350 oven for 16 to 22 minutes until light golden brown on the top and edges. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Or serve them while still warm, like they do at Levain!

This copycat recipe for the amazing chocolate chip cookies from Levain Bakery in New York City is incredible. These enormous cookies are crispy on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside...just perfect!
